Who else cares about your marriage?

Besides the in-laws and your closest friends? How about the boss?

Postnuptial agreements are gaining popularity as an estate-planning tool, and some hedge funds and private-equity firms have asked their top executives to sign them to protect their companies in case of a messy divorce, according to attorneys and financial advisers.


Postnup agreements are similar to prenuptial agreements, but they are crafted and signed after a couple is married. Attorneys say that the agreements actually can strengthen marriages, because the couple is able to resolve disputes about money and then focus on the marriage itself.
